San Francisco again

strawberry almond cake

Well here we are, back where the trip started, in San Francisco. We had a day and a bit to rest up before flying back to Melbourne, just enough time to fit in 3 more meals! 🙂

First stop was a return visit to Gracias Madre for dinner. We had ordered way too much food last time we were there and had left no room for dessert. This time we were determined to eat dessert. Sadly, we over ordered again! But all was not lost. I got a flan to go which we carried home carefully on the bus and ate later.

We ordered a repeat of the baked eggplant. Sadly this time it was a little underdone for me, with my terror of undercooked eggplant, though it was still delicious. We also ate some guacamole with fresh tortillas, some corn chips with a spicy, creamy chipotle salsa roja and cashew cream and some tacos with three fillings, mushroom, pumpkin and greens. The food at Gracias Madre tastes so good that it is really difficult not to order the entire menu.

Breakfast next morning was a return visit to Herbivore. I ordered the Southwestern Tofu Scramble with blueberry corn bread and S ordered pancakes with maple syrup and grilled bananas.

I headed off that day to walk across the Golden Gate Bridge, and ate lunch alone at Greens Restaurant. I ordered a Mediterranean platter which was a delicious combination of a smoky eggplant dip, pita, tabbouleh, a green bean, butter bean and shelled bean salad with a tarragon dressing. Not particularly innovative in any way, but perfectly done. Dessert was a strawberry almond cake with strawberry sorbet, also delicious.

We had a leisurely coffee at Vinyl Coffee and Wine Bar again and then headed off to the airport to fly home.
